On this day October 27

October 27, 1945, 7:00 p.m. Koser’s Carpentry shop, East Garfield Street. A fire that started outside in a pile of wood shavings extended inside the shop and to the overhead belts that run the machinery. Firemen worked for over three hours before leaving the scene. Damages were estimated at $3,000. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies operated at the scene.
Since it is close to Halloween,I thought this would be a good photograph to post. This was the Halloween party at the Vigilant Hose Company in 1967. The woman standing with the dark hair is Dolores Myers, the devil is Brad Myers and the man with the mustache and vest is Gerald Holtry. The photo was taken by Ed Haupt, in the 1980's he donated all his pictures to the Vigilant's.
